Monasticon Praemonstratense (II, 274)

Elm Number:  120*


Founded near the south bank of the Maas, just east of the present town of Heusden, on August 3, 1134. After the time of religious and political disturbances in the 16th century, the house was vacated. 

It was again restored at a different location, in Heeswijk-Dinther, on February 2, 1857 as a daughter house of Marienweerd abbey in Noord-Brabant.
